Title: Getting The Gang Back Together For 76?
Post by: Brother None on June 12, 2018, 08:05:51 AM
Are we going to set up an Unwashed Village in 76?

I think I've got an old cardboard box full of pointy sticks and pomegranates down in my cellar which I could try to dig out.

There is an Unwashed Village steam group we could use for matchmaking with Villagers.

Friends don't let friends nuke themselves alone!

Aw crap. I forgot that we are in the age of multiple platforms. I'll be on Xbox.

Yeah, if I get this, it'll be for steam. I recently changed jobs and used my unused vacation to buy a sweet new gaming rig that Liz and I put togehter. (I wasn't planning on going for a GTX 1080 originally, but I was able to snag one for $615 (US) which put it pretty much the best deal I was going to find for a graphics card for the quality. (Fuck Ethereum in the ear!) And since I got a GPU that supported 4K, I naturally had to get a monitor that did so as well. So after paying more than I originally planned, I have a rig that can run pretty much any game out there at full graphics capability.

BTW, welcome back. I find it interesting that of the three of us posting in this thread, I'm the newest member of the UV.

Not bad for the price of the 1080 with how bad the prices are getting due to bitcoin mining, I need to upgrade my system now as well since it's 10 years old and it's starting to reach the maximum capacity I'm going to get out of it. Glad you got a new one, enjoy those crisp 4k graphics!

As for the last line....lol some things you just don't think about anymore :P

I'd be down.
As for the Collector's edition, I may need to pass this time. 200 dollary doos for a helmet is a bit much

Bitcoin isn't the problem anymore, since ASIC rigs are cheaper and faster at mining Bitcoins due to the type blockchain technology Bitcoin employs.

Ethereum is the big culprit these days. And from what I understand ASIC style rigs don't support the type of blockchain Ethereum and its ilk use, so GPU's (especially AMD) are still being used for that.

I'm ordering the collector's edition, because I am are an idiot! :D

Oh and I'm getting it for PS4. Shame that Sony and Microsoft are dicks and don't do crossystem matching most of the time. :S

Cyptocurrency or not, it sucks that graphics cards are still so expensive. I remember when a top end card was $500 in like 2006, back in the Golden Era of 3D PC gaming. I figured by now they'd be a lot cheaper.

I'll probably get it on Xbox One.

This whole post is exactly why I re-found everyone here, :-(

I’ve pre-ordered the Tricentennial version, and I’ll be on PS4

Sooooo wanna get a community together so we don’t all get griefed right out of the gate.

That would involve me actually gaming on our PS4. (It was a gift from Liz's sister. We mostly use it for streaming.)

I've played the Beta over the weekend, on your own it's kinda boring and I struggled to find a point in what I was doing. There's no NPCs to interact with or story to follow, the closest thing to the latter is finding a bunch of audio casset tapes that describe the backstory of an old lady you've never met and it's not particularly interesting.

I played it with my girlfriend and we had a bit more fun, we decided to build a house together, which made us want to gather resources and the like and exploring some of the world with your friends is kinda fun as the world is really well made. If anything the map is the best thing about it but it feels so empty and barren, that it feels like they made the map and called it a day. Well, the map and the new enemies, which are kind of interesting.

It feels more like a multiplayer mod foor Fallout 4 than a new game, it feels oddly lonely and lacking in any depth or motivation.

I played with my girlfriend for three or so hours on friday, played for an hour and twenty five minutes last night and didn't even feel like playing tonight. It's not terrible, per say but very very average.

Soo. Having read a few reviews and judging by the mob's reaction on reddit, I guess I'll give this one a pass. Also, I have zero time to actually play any games at the moment.

Any opposition, or is there something salvageble about this game?

I haven't heard very good things about it either.

I've heard a few friends that like it but they definitely don't hesitate to point out many many glaring flaws.

It might eventually become a much better game but I'm passing on it for now, will see where it's at in a year and decide.

I guess I'm the only one who has played it. :D

It's so good, that I've spent the last three weeks, writing out a review for it as I find new flaws every day. The additions to the lore are insultingly stupid (the original super mutants are the result of an environmental catastrophe, created by a captain planet villain! Suck on that kids!) and the game is completey lacking in stability. You will encounter several glitches per play session, guarrenteed.

Then there are the long term issues, like how some part of the map can have you encounter 3 giant bat creatures, who are essentially dragons from Skyrim. Yes, you have to fight THREE dragons at once and sometimes this can happen, the second you spawn into the map. Like Bethesda are saying 'thanks for playing! Go fuck yourself! :D'

The weight is awful as well. With no companions or home base to dump your loot on (you have a camp loot but it has a max wg of 400, which is nowhere near enough), you will find yourself walking through most of the wasteland's perils, including the afformentioned 3 dragons attacking you at once fiasco.

The story is virtually none existent, it lacks anything interesting as most of the people involved are long since dead. It feels more like an online version of 'Everybody's Gone to the Rapture' than online Fallout. FOnline could have NPCs, so I don't know why this can't...

You'll rarely meet other players and when you do, they won't impact you positively or negatively. It's the pollar opposite problem of games like GTA Online, where everyone kills you on sight. Player interractions are somewhat meaningless, due to them not being able to hurt you, without your permission and you don't really need another person to complete a quest.

I've been playing it since the beta, almost every day and in spite of all of its flaws, I'd still say it's really average as an experience overall. There's fun to be had, I guess and I really like the new creature and weapon designs. Even the little things, like the guitar sword and Fallout-ized squirrels add a lot to the game and the factions are pretty decent on a concept level, along with some of the enemies like the Mole Miners and the Urban Legends like the Mothman.

However, the fact that they're in Fallout 76 is even more insulting.

I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone, especially not at full price. Maybe if Bethesda fix it up a bit, it would be tollerable but even then, it won't ever be good. It's too... nothing to ever be something.

I'll post my review, when I finish it. I'm still scripting the bastard and I'm still writing the stuff I hate about the lore/story and main quest, so... it'll probably take a while. :>
